    Impressive riding. Just watched it full screen, like the bit where he catches up on the three riders.

    The fastest I had ever been on my GSXR600 was 164mph, it's the strangest feeling as reality sort of disappears and it almost feels like your are playing a computer game. At those speeds I think the balance between rider and bike shifts heavily towards the bike! lol

    Cars just seemed boring for quite a long time after my days of riding but it wasn't until the Accord that I started enjoying cars again. Difficult to match the acceleration of a bike though unless you've got a beast of a car but for £5K you can get superbike performance in a bike compared to ridiculous money for the car equivalent.

    I agree Arcticfire, So my first was a CBR600-FS, that was quick, but then after having a Kawasaki ZX10R I have infinite respect for these guys - the amount of taming a bike needs to be put in it's place, especially around a course like the IOM, is something very impressive indeed!

    Can't wait to get myself back on two wheels!
